Conversations on Consent
Webinar with Panel Discussion
15 June 2020
We are thrilled to welcome Lauren Sutherland QC and Nadine Montgomery to host this webinar to start our Conversations on Consent. Both are passionate about encouraging doctors, healthcare professionals and lawyers to understand informed consent.
After an introduction to the case and their journey to the Supreme Court, you will hear more about the implications of the decision across our professions. Lauren and Nadine will be joined by a panel of lawyers and clinicians to discuss the issues raised and the challenges faced in practice.
Panellists include both lawyers and doctors:
Dr Simon Fox QC, Paul Sankey (Enable Law), Simon Lindsay (Bevan Britten)
Mr Paul Thorpe (Spinal Surgeon), Mr Tim Dudderidge (Urologist), Dr Phil Banfield (Obstetrician), Dr Bob Freeman (Gynaecologist).
Conversations on Consent – Panel Events
Edinburgh, September 2020
Oxford, December 2020
It’s not enough to simply deliver a webinar and leave it at that. Many of the issues surrounding informed consent in clinical settings, and the mounting of a consent claim, need to be teased out in more detailed discussion.
With this in mind, we’ll use our June webinar as a springboard to get the Conversation going. We will host panel events around the UK in autumn at which more complex issues can be explored further.
Both lawyers and medics are welcome at these events, where we seek to facilitate clearer understanding of the implementation and implications of informed consent.
